I focus on inputting everything I eat no matter what so my mind doesn't tell me what I ate was worse or better than reality. This helps keep me on track.6
Tuesday April 12
Did yoga for the first time today using my Apple Fitness+ and completed my commitment to get some exercise in the morning. Hoping this will help with the mid/low back discomfort and tight hips I am experiencing. Outdoor walk was capped at 50 minutes as the wind chill had it at -17C. Snow and storm is on the way in 🥶❄️🌨

Question: How do you maintain productive eating patterns and/or get yourself on track when derailed?
I pre-track what and when I can and track everything else. This helps me keep my eating productive and purposeful rather than sporadic and driven by emotion. And when emotion pulls me to want something different, the pre-tracking before eating said item often just stops me. I haven’t had a significant derailment yet and this is, I guess, working for me so far. I also think my attention to the “calories out” helps me be more aware of what I am putting in my mouth. I know how hard I have to work to burn it off and that helps keeps me focused.2

@tahm42 such a loss - I am so sorry!0
Exercise: 15 minutes MommaStrong, 20 minutes walk, 5 minutes stretching
Tracking: Pre-planned the day
Calories: Followed the plan
@StayFITTer a great opener. In general, preplanning the day makes it pretty easy - just follow the plan and it goes well. I have also discovered that it is key to have just the right number to be aiming for - as my name shows, I can do slow and steady. When I try to lose faster, suddenly I am having cravings, I am cheating, I am grabbing things off the kids' plates as I clear the table and rummaging in the cabinets for their snacks. When I am keeping calories to a very small deficit I mostly don't have trouble with emotional eating or eating I don't mean to do. Where I do struggle is with social eating and celebration eating, and I haven't found great solutions to that yet.
I am going to NYC on Friday - Wednesday and there will be a lot of social eating and celebration eating and eating things I don't have full control over. I am going to keep checking in here on my phone (so probably quick checking) to stay inspired by all of you. I don't think I'll have time for my morning long check ins before I go or for a bit after I get back. I expect tomorrow to still be on track, just no time to hang out at my computer as I get ready. After that I doubt I will track, but I will just try not to go crazy and try to limit the damage. Oof.4

The "most like past-normal" I have had since I got back from the UK. Plenty of walking both indoors before the workday started and after supper outside; pre-logged; kept to the plan.
